Ashington FC manager Ian Skinner has targeted maximum points from his side’s final two league games.

The Colliers host Thornaby at The dwmedia Stadium on Saturday (April 9) then travel to face Consett the following week (April 16).

Skinner said: “Our aim in the league is all about can we get six points because if results go our way and we win both games, it could see us finish third in the league table. So that has to be the target and see where it takes us. They are two big and very tough matches with the result at Consett possibly defining whether they finish first or second. For Saturday’s tussle against Thornaby, Max Cowburn, Bobby Taylor, Tom Bramley and Paul Robinson – who all missed out in midweek – come back into contention.
